* A variation is used in ''Manga/{{Hellsing}}''. As Alucard's powers are controlled by Integra via HermeticMagic, only she can say how much of his power can be used. This is seen when different levels of Alucard's power are released, culminating in the GodzillaThreshold when [[spoiler:Alucard's full power is unloaded, allowing him to call forth the thousands of souls he has consumed over the years to tear the forces of Millenium to shreds.]]

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' features Eren Jaegar, whose ability [[spoiler:to turn into a Titan]] only activates when he's injured. However, he instinctively realizes that self-harm works as well, and from then on it becomes a controlled ability.

** The requirements to activate the Saiyan SuperMode are similar to this. Once a Saiyan of sufficient power has been pushed over the DespairEventHorizon, said Saiyan will trigger the golden-haired Super Saiyan state. Part of Gohan's training involved taking control of his anger in this fashion.

* The [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Human Torch]]'s Nova Flame attack sometimes works like this, but often it takes the role of the WorfBarrage.

** In the more widely-known MSPA comic ''{{Webcomic/Homestuck}}'', characters have abilities called Fraymotifs that can be bought for astronomical amounts of money and are to be used either alone or in tandem with other members of the session. They supposedly are the most powerful attacks in the game, but since the only character that they have been used on [[spoiler: is a dog with the powers of the First Guardians]], this may be a moot point.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/{{Claymore}}'' the titular Claymores can use their strongest personal techniques and become more powerful in general only when they unleash their Yoma energy, an energy they can use thanks to the fact that they are themselves [[HalfHumanHybrid half Human and half Yoma]], this is quite dangerous however as the more ''Yoki'' a Claymore uses the more she becomes [[SuperpoweredEvilSide similar to a Yoma]] and even [[AndThenJohnWasAZombie lose control and turn into an Awakened being]]. [[spoiler: There are however those who managed to turn back even after losing control and coming very close to Awakening, these ones can use their techniques with greater freedom and become considerably stronger than how they were before.]]

* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' omakes and anime, it's revealed that Hanatarou's zanpakutou is this, absorbing the injuries of others that fills a gauge on the side of the sword whereupon the stored power can be used as a surprisingly powerful, explosive attack.

** Kyouraku's power is based on weaponising children's games. As a result, once activated, his zanpakutou sets the rules by which everyone - including Kyouraku - must fight. In other words, until his zanpakutou decides it's time for the rules to allow Kyouraku to use his more powerful abilities, he can't access them.

* ''Anime/MahouShoujoLyricalNanohaStrikerS'' calls Nanoha's Blaster System and a few other attacks limit breaks with some GratuitousEnglish. And her [[WaveMotionGun Starlight Breaker]], which recycles recently-used mana in the vicinity, and so gets more powerful the later in the fight it's used.

** Earlier in the series, the Kaze-no-Kizu (Wind Scar) can only be used if Inuyasha can find the "rift" between his aura and the opponent's, and cut through it. Make particularly difficult by Kagura, who can control wind and thus manipulates the flow of their auras so Inuyasha can't find the rift.

** Majin Buu's Angry Explosion also fits this trope, as it's only activation is when his [[RageBreakingPoint massive anger]] is triggered.
* ''Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann'''s GIGA DRILL BREAKER can only be unleashed when the main character's spiral energy peaks (usually caused by an extreme burst of emotion).

* In ''Manga/{{Kuroko no Basuke}}'', the Zone works like this. The requirements are, at minimum, that you must love the sport you're playing, that you be an advanced prodigy (i.e. the Generation of Miracles or [[spoiler:Kagami]]), that you have an incredible, single-minded focus on the game and your desire to win, and that you are pressed to activate your unique "trigger" to open the door (i.e. Aomine's trigger is to have a "worthy opponent", against whom he can go all-out and have fun). However, with knowledge of one's trigger, and sufficient focus, it's possible to force open the door on your own, as [[spoiler:Aomine, Kagami, and Akashi demonstrate]], so it works more like Dragon Ball's Super Saiyan form than the standard limit break.
